Tomorrow is October first. So, if you’re living in Wisconsin, like me, that means Fall is in full swing. Temperatures are dropping, it’s getting darker a lot earlier, and those leaves are changing colors. Pumpkins are everywhere, along with Halloween decorations. My kids love driving around looking at all things Fall, so I thought I would come up with a list of our Fall Favorites.
Not only do I have Fall favorites from the kids, but I’ve included some things I’m loving, and my husband too.
I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate links, in case you want to make them your fall favorites too. Just click-through the picture to purchase. No additional cost to you. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more details.
Mr. B’s Favorites
October has to be one of Mr. B’s favorite months because it’s his birthday on the 13th. He’s looking forward to going out to dinner on his actual birthday, and then we’ll throw him a party a weekend or so later.
His favorite dinner spot is Red Robin. He loves burgers, and all the lights/decorations there. Plus, it’s nice and loud, which covers up the screaming of his brothers.
For his birthday, he wants more Lego sets.
He would love this Lego set, although, he’d have to fight his dad for it.
He also wants the new Death Star Lego Set, but it costs $300, which is craziness and not going to happen.
The other thing he’s loving right now is Minecraft. He has one Minecraft book, which helps you figure out things in the game, but would like another one. They have them available (for cheaper) on Amazon, but I ordered him one through his school because his classroom also earns books when we order. The links below are Amazon. You’re welcome.
I honestly still don’t understand the appeal of Minecraft, but he enjoys building things on it, and he’s become really good at it. Plus, he’s learned some computer skills, which they need in school.
The Twins’ Favorites
I was going to split up the boys, but they still pretty much like the same things. They do spend at least 5 hours apart every week, since they are in preschool, but I’m not too sure what happens there. Sure, they tell me some things, but I would love to be a fly on the wall one day. I’m going to talk about our decision to split them up in a future post.
Anyways, back to what they are loving.
Following in big brother’s footsteps, they’ve been enjoying dressing up and running around the living room. It started last week when they got super hero Happy Meals.
Then, on one rainy day, I broke out their Darth Vader rain coats. Now, they all have to wear them and run around the living room. Complete mayhem.
The twins still love all things trains and cars. Their favorite train of the moment is Sam with his tender. He’s a wooden engine, so he’s nice and big. You would think that would make it harder to lose him, but you would be very wrong.
Their favorite show to watch right now is The Magic School Bus. It’s actually a really educational show. It has Lily Tomlin voicing the main character of Ms. Frizzle, and they learn a lot about science. I’m not sure how much the twins understand, but it’s a nice change from Thomas.
We don’t have cable, so we watch everything on a combo of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon. Right now, Amazon is having a great deal on their Firestick. You can get rid of your cable and watch streaming shows right on your TV. Plus, you get up to $65 worth of free digital content when you activate it.
My Fall Favorites
This Fall, and usually every other day, I’m all about being cozy. I love being able to snuggle under blankets and watch my favorite TV shows to unwind at night. Right now, I’m loving all the new Fall TV, including the new season of How to Get Away with Murder. Even though it’s pretty silly, I’m really liking the new Kristen Bell show called The Good Place.
I also love all the fall colors when it comes to fashion. Burgundy, brown, and olive-green make up my wardrobe…when I’m not in workout clothes.
I have been going to the gym regularly, so I think I might treat myself to a few new pair of pants or sweatshirt. I saw this one in a store when we were in Vegas, and I wish I would have got it there.
My Husband’s Fall Favorites
My husband has been working a lot lately. He’s in real estate, so he’s been trying to close a lot of deals before the end of the year.
I don’t want to start a new series, so he’s on his own. I did finally convince him to watch Stranger Things, and we binged through it super fast. Can’t wait for season 2!!!
He also likes to have a few beers, and I’ve even got him a few seasonal ones. We love our Leinenkugel’s here in WI, so we tried the Harvest Spice Shandy. It’s still not as good as Summer Shandy, but it’s fun for Fall. Berry Weiss will still always be one of my favorites.
Well, that’s about it for now. We’re going to try to head out to a pumpkin patch this weekend, if it’s not raining.
What are you loving this Fall?
